The war machine is one of our main issues draining the economy. It has continued to create large deficits in the past with little cooperation or means for the American people to pay it back or forward through taxation. It is highly debated how these efforts and sanctions benefit our relationships and guarantee any real sense of security. These policies may not be worth the collapse of our society and the more important loss of human capital. The only "ism" we need to address is realism.
We know our government is dictated by corporations and our military complex. What politicians can't understand is that they work for the citizens who may be willing to hedge their vote on greater peacemaking efforts and they desire greater fiscal responsibility. It may be a youthful and more optimistic tide of change but it seems to be part of the global spring that will benefit all of mankind.
For those who still believe this war effort guarantees our freedoms are not looking at the long term picture. An American economy that plunges any further will never guarantee greater security no matter how large in numbers our ground troops present. It is time to work for the greater majority and we need quality leadership that can do what is fiscally and morally responsible. Lately, there seems to be no one willing to address this but Ron Paul. We need to focus on our own internal affairs; energy policy, infrastructure and our trading relations with partners like China who continue to charge our goods with a VAT tax, steal our technology and tempt our corporations to trade against the benefits of our nation as a whole.
For those of you independents- register republican and vote in the primaries for Ron Paul. If you don't our only options will be Obama and Mitt thereby, business as usual.
